    Sanders and Harris crossed the base. What will it cost them?

    Analysis by Gregory Krieg, CNN

    ... But his mention of Obama -- at that time, in that place -- caused anger and frustration in some already skeptical quarters of the Democratic base, particularly among those who argue Sanders' insistence on framing inequality as a chiefly economic matter, with racial concerns existing downstream from that core divide, effectively downplays the fight for racial justice.

    ... A new poll from ABC News and the Washington Post shows Democrats’ advantage is narrowing in a so-called “generic ballot”, where voters are asked which party they plan to favour in the coming election. In January, Democrats lead Republicans in a generic matchup by 12 per cent. In April, that lead was just 4 per cent.

    ... According to an analysis by the Globe, Klarman has given over $200,000 to Democrats since the election of President Donald Trump, after spending more than $7 million on Republicans and their organizations while Barack Obama was president.

    Can This Millennial Mayor Make Universal Basic Income a Reality?
    Michael Tubbs is the 27-year-old leader of one of California’s biggest cities. And he’s using that position to try out some truly radical policy ideas
    By EDWARD-ISAAC DOVERE


    ... The 27-year-old mayor of a city of 307,000—26 when he knocked out the Republican incumbent, the same night Donald Trump won, in his own status quo-bulldozing election—is looking to redefine the sense of what works through redefining how people think about work. It’s not just the $500 checks that will soon start going out to 100 residents monthly in a universal basic-income pilot program, it’s about transforming the entire posture of city government.
